Mengran Liu, Ph.D.

Mengran Liu is a technology specialist in the Litigation Department, and a member of the Life Sciences Patent practice. Mengran Liu assists the Firm in patent persecution with her deep expertise in synthetic organic chemistry, electrocatalysis and chemical energy conversion processes.

Prior to joining Proskauer, Mengran performed her post-doctoral research at Harvard University, where she applied synthetic, electrochemical, optical spectroscopic, and quantitative analytical techniques to explore mechanisms in the catalysis of small molecules of energy consequences, and in turn create new species of catalysts to improve energy storage efficiency.

As a graduate research fellow at North Carolina State University, Mengran created sequential synthetic methods and strategic approaches to develop molecules with distinctive photophysical properties, and further explored their applications in areas such as photosynthesis, catalysis, energy sciences, and biomedicine.
